When washed relube them with good lube I use petroleum jelly as its more a grease than a oil.
Once you have run the barrel in with the lubed pellets you should find you will not need to clean out the barrel till you switch pellet but always lube the pellets .
BY running in the barrel I mean the lube is in the full length of the barrel which you will strip out by using pellets with out the lube you pick.
Happy shooting
Doesn't make any difference with the steyr, after 60-70 shots she's shotgunning and continues to do so until she's cleaned.

Either that or the placebo effect is working a treat.
